Great reviews for Big Wave series

Posted on: June 24th, 2013

The final episode in Big Wave’s three-part series on measurement for BBC4 airs tonight, and the reviews have been fantastic! Here’s what the Guardian had to say about it:


‘Third and final instalment of Professor Marcus du Sautoy’s absorbing inquiry into how and why we measure our universe the way we do; where, in short, such increments as seconds, metres and kilograms came from. In previous episodes, he pondered such commodities as time, distance and mass. Tonight, we get to grips with heat, light and electricity. As Du Sautoy notes, measuring energy is an exacting business: get it wrong, and things have a tendency to explode’.
Tune in tonight at 21:00 on BBC4!
